(Hindu Deity)KALI

Also known as KALIKA, KALI-MA, THE BLACK MOTHER
Attributes : Coming soon ...

Vahana (Vehicle) :

Hard as nails Goddess born from Durga's brow. She loved a good scrap - anyone, anytime, anywhere - Kali was like the Martini arse kicker.

In the 'if looks could kill' department, Kali was right up there with the best of them. Naked, except for a belt of severed hands, a tusked face with a third eye in her forehead, ear-rings made from corpses of young children, a necklace of human skulls, four arms and an enormous roller-blind tongue.

She was bribed on a regular basis by the Gods to slay particularly nasty foes of theirs, including Sumbha and Nisumba who had achieved immunity from any harm by the Gods and Mahisha who had gained enough strength to threaten the very existence of the celestial Kingdom - though she would've probably done it for free such was her craving for bloodshed.

One of her best known battles was against the demon, Raktavira. After defeating his many armies single handed she made a bee-line for Raky himself, killing him several times. But everytime she did, his spilled blood gave birth to a thausand giants each as powerful as he. She eventually overcame this inconvenience by holding him up with her four hands, then pierced his chest with a spear and drank his blood, every last drop. After this most pleasant victory she danced so wildly the whole world shook. Her husband Shiva begged her to stop but in her ecstatic state she didn't see him and did the charlston on his body.

What a disrespectful way to act towards the only fella in the whole universe to find you even remotely attractive.
